NASA's Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, or LCROSS, arrived in Florida on Feb. 19. It will be prepared for flight at Astrotech Space Operations facility in Titusville, near Kennedy Space Center. The satellite's mission is one of the first steps in NASA's plan to return astronauts to the moon. The primary mission of LCROSS is to search for water ice on the moon in a permanently shadowed crater near one of the lunar poles. Launch is targeted for this spring.

The full-scale mock-up of NASA's Orion crew module is being tested in the water off the coast of Kennedy Space Center in Florida the week of April 6. The spacecraft mock-up traveled from the Naval Surface Warfare Center's Carderock Division in Bethesda, Md., to Kennedy. The goal of the operation, dubbed the Post-landing Orion Recovery Test, or PORT, is to determine what kind of motion astronauts can expect after landing, as well as outside conditions for recovery teams.
